Alibi’s cutting-edge wine rating application for smart phones
By Joseph A. Baca [ Fri Mar 23 2012 5:07 PM ]
One of the most exciting aspects of the Alibi’s April 6 Fine Wine and Art Fest is that, in partnership with a company called Secondglass.com, we’ve designed a dynamic mobile phone app that will allow you to see all the wines from participating wineries on your smart phone as you cruise through the event hall. Wines will all be neatly organized by booth, winery and wine category within the application. You will also be able to access information about wine prices and where bottles are available for purchase. And you can comment on the wines and rate them as you sample them, so that all your thoughts are recorded for future use. This information will all be shared and shown in live time on large television monitors at the event. Those that don't have an iPhone or Android can direct their mobile browser on their Blackberry or Windows phone to Secondglass.com and use the mobile website.
